I’m going to start writing something new soon, once I wrap up The Waiting Game (parts 2 & 4 are on-going and about halfway done). It’s been a long time since I’ve written something new, with new characters and a new place and all that. I’m excited to start, but it’s going to be unpleasant (haha, of course it is). I have one scene kicking around in my brain, and it’s making me uncomfortable having it in there. Hopefully I’ll find time to write it down soon.
I’ve also joined a critique group! I’m looking forward to the feedback and getting to spend time with other people’s writing again. Hopefully this will be a good group, and we’ll all make each other’s work better.
This is the busiest time of year for me personally, with birthdays and holidays and such, but I’m still sticking to writing every day, even if usually I’m not writing as much as I’d like. And I finished Theft by Finding and I’ve started Bird Box (the movie version filmed on my sister’s land, so I’ve been looking forward to reading the book, since I’ll have to see the movie). I’m tearing through it, so maybe I’ll be able to fit another book in this month as well to keep on pace for 12 books this year.
Over all, I’m reminding myself that my goal this year is progress, not perfection, and I’m making progress every day!
